This house in Lincoln, Massachusetts was built on a site near the Gropius House and the Breuer II House. The design originally accommodated two adults, a daughter, and a maid on a sloping site at the edge of the woods. The house is oriented for sunlight and views to a small pond to the south. The house is wood frame with vertical siding and steel casement windows. A flagstone terrace with trellis is adjacent to a small dining room along the southeast corner. A sun screen composed of redwood boards and specially designed brackets runs the entire length of the south wall at the upper floor windows.
This three-bedroom, four-bath house uses Weldboard as the chief interior wall and ceiling finish, painted different colors to distinguish between rooms. The exception is the interior stair, which is finished with vertical siding. A glass partition above the built-in buffet separates the living and dining rooms. A similar technique in the master suite divides the dressing room from the bedroom.
